    Greetings, afr0byte.

    The days of Eisenhower integrity, and balanced budgets, and the building of a national highway system that we all enjoy today? Yes, the 50s sound good to me!

    I guess it depends on what you mean by support. I certainly don't see any problem, necessarily, with a single parent household, no. Again, it depends on the situation. I don't know what situation you're talking about.

    I'm talking about social issues, primarily. You're OK with going back to segregation?

    Support, in this instance, means government assistance. When an activity is subsidized you generally get more of it.

    Yes, I'm OK with government assistance.

    Wouldn't you rather know where the families are?

    What do you mean "know where the families are?"

    This conversation is going nowhere fast, or slow, for that matter...

    Provide more information. I'll give you an answer. Knowing where the families went could mean many things.
